Ewa Jozefkowicz’s latest book is simply delicious. The Cooking Club Detectives covers some serious territory such as food poverty and adult depression, but it deals with the subjects lightly in a story full of hope, where children have agency and take positive action. And as you will gather from the title, there’s a mystery to be solved too. I invited Ewa In The Reading Corner to help me sort out the ingredients in this culinary delight.
About The Cooking Club Detectives
Meet Erin, her puppy Sausage and friends as they swap recipes and pots for clues and culprits and try to solve the mystery of why their cookery club is closing and save it for everyone. The fourth middle-grade book from author Ewa Jozefkowicz about family, friendship and self-discovery, touching on themes of food poverty and online bullying.
Skipton House Community Centre may look ramshackle, but it is soon at the heart of Erin’s life – especially the cooking club. When the building is suddenly threatened with closure, Erin and her new friends, Tanya, Frixos, and Sam, form The Cooking Club Detectives.
Can they, and their four-legged assistant, Sausage, uncover who the mystery culprit is and save Skipton? A beautifully observed story about the power of food and the importance of community.
